TM Nam 4189

Stable URI (with TM Nam ID): www.trismegistos.org/name/4189
Standard variants

Greek: Μύσθης

Gender: Male

Linguistic origins: Greek

Type: religious?

influence of Egyptian msdr names (Mestasytmis)

Notes: If a person is only attested with the genitive Μύσθου, this is by default assigned to the variant Μύσθης because it is statistically more likely (there are ca. 350 non-genitive attestations of Μύσθης vs. 156 for Μύσθας).
Previous discussion: Clarysse: I accept Musthas only when there is a clear ending in -as (e.g. nominative Mysthas, dative Mysthati); not the same name as Mysthes; problem of Mystes (kept separate). Yanne: don't agree, because then there are no more genitives for Mysthas, and there are also people called Μύσθας Μύσθου so I can't imagine this to be different names; I have therefore merged them.
